Have you found any recommendations personally helpful and started using any of them regularly? I am talking about less common things, not so much about ideas that are already widely adopted in Paleo community.

Hello, I'm trying to get more data points about possible adaptations to high fat diets. I know about Peter Attia's numbers ( http://youtu.be/NqwvcrA7oe8?t=33m23s ) and I thought that's the best case probably. But today, I've found this... (more)

Hey all, I am a triathlete and wondering about wether bp coffee (e.g. coffee with butter + coconut oil) is sufficient as a pre-workout "snack" to prevent katabolism when doing Intermittent Fasting? I am not aiming for the long distance but my... (more)

No, my opinion is that it's definitely not enough to prevent muscle catabolism. Fasted exercise is a fantastic tool for people that are trying to lose weight, as well as being handy for general fitness - where you'd wake up, work out, and then... (more)

Yes, in a case like this, this is probably the best commercially made energy bar I've seen. Granted, most of them are garbage. ;-) I would actually consider banana puree superior to a banana mid-race, as hypothetically more (most?) of the... (more)

Better make those uphill sprints... nothing drastic--a gentle slope will do. 100-120 yds. at least 8-10 times (2-3x/week) will do wonders.
